The Discover stream shows you news about popular songs, other music, bands, and artists. It displays large photos and uses an odd, horizontal scrolling interface. There's a "radio" button that lets you stream music in popular genres.

You can always return to your home page by clicking the Myspace logo at the bottom left in the gray navigation area, next to your name.

The music player controls are there too, letting you listen to popular songs and "radio stations."

Your Myspace home page will look a little empty until you connect to some artists, bands or other users.

Then you'll see a stream of updates at the top of the page similar to Facebook's news feed or the update stream from your connections on LinkedIn and other social networks.

Across the bottom of your page is your music navigation menu, your "deck" as Myspace calls it.
